Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Reginald Graham

Postgraduate Politics and International Studies student


Growing up in London, my Windrush Generation parents instilled me with an understanding of the power of education. In a world that’s constantly changing, I remain a strong advocate of lifelong learning. ICE courses are highly relevant to the shifting landscape around us and their part-time structure makes them well-suited to busy, working professionals like me. I’m currently training senior officials in the Caribbean how to respond to key public policy challenges like climate change. My postgraduate study at ICE has not only directly impacted this work but also provided learning and long-lasting friendships with students from all over the world.

As a professional writer and editor focusing on business and government, my work increasingly examines globalisation and the role of major states. I wanted to make greater sense of what drives nations and leaders, so that I can write more engaging and informed content and become more questioning. I love the intensive weekend sessions, held at beautiful Madingley Hall, as they offer the chance to step aside from daily life and focus on learning. I’ve been surprised at how much I’ve learned from my peers too. Their perspectives enrich my understanding, and it’s a privilege to study with them.

I chose to study here because of ICE’s high-quality teaching and research. Knowing I’d be learning from world-class leaders in their fields and that the course would be academically rigorous with a manageable timetable affirmed my choice. I thoroughly enjoyed the course content, the teaching style and the extensive staff support. The course really stretched my thinking and introduced me to an amazing cohort. I’m now more confident in writing, reasoning and putting forward critical arguments around a range of topics, including international relations. I hope to pursue an advanced degree based on the skills I’ve developed, further allowing me to switch between careers in finance, government and business.
